In Route Planner, the "Clear Planner" command removes everything except Nogo points.

Good day Taras,

Nogo places are completely independent on Route planner. They are globally used in application also during navigation, so it's purpose is not one-time change of route in planner, but "permanent" setup of possible obstacles.

OK, I was not aware Nogo points are handled differently. The documentation will need to be revised because it currently gives the impression "Clear Planner" will "abort all planning".


If you are dissatisfied with your planning or for whatever reason want to abort all planning, tap Clear planner in the route menu:


If I understand correctly, unlike shaping and via points, Nogo points last from one route-planning session to another. They are deleted individually and not by the "Clear planner" command.

Yes, you understand correctly. Let's say that "Nogo places" are permanent and independent. On one side, it may be diss-advantage if you wants to use them to setup a route during planning (which is not their main purpose) anyway it may be a big advantage because you may use them to permanently (or till defined time) block areas you don't want to pass, which is a lot more useful then first case.

Enjoy it!

As far as I can see Nogo places are only visible in the Route Planner. There is no special points folder or other listing in Locus where they can be viewed/ reviewed. So from a user's point of view there is no indication these special points are global and/or permanent. Each person will adopt Nogo places for their own purpose; for me I currently only use them during route planning, and not for permanent blocking. However their usefulness would be greatly enahanced by 'regularizing' their properties...

  • Expose all Nogo points/ places via a special Nogo points folder.
  • If these points are permanent & global, allow them to be visible on map like other points/ POI (outside Route Planner mode).
  • These points can then be visible (active)/ deleted/ edited/ exported/ imported/ sorted consistent with other points/ folders.
  • New topic?

My post had included an observation that Nogo points are like POIs and they ought to be managed in a list somewhere ... but then I deleted it! Nogo points are brand new and it felt too soon to give Menion more work! ;)


Yes, it would be convenient to manage them like POIs/points. It would be more consistent with how standard points are handled. In their current form, Nogo points are very unique because they only live in the Route Planner. They cannot be listed, sorted (by type or expiration date), selected in a bunch and deleted, imported/exported, and all the other things we can currently do with standard points. However, how many users need this degree of control for Nogo points? I encourage you to post it as an Idea and let's see how many votes it gets.
